Synopsis

"I adore Kristen Ashley's books!"---Maya Banks, New York Times bestselling author

Love is the greatest gamble of all . . .

Nina Sheridan desperately needs a timeout vacation. With a fiancé who can't even remember how she takes her coffee, Nina wants some distance to rethink her engagement. Flying halfway around the world from England to a mountain town in Colorado should do the trick. But when she finds a gorgeous man at her rental cabin, Nina's cold, lonely adventure suddenly heats up.

The owner of the house, Holden "Max" Maxwell is surprised by the beautiful woman who turns up at his door. But when Nina becomes ill, Max spends days nursing her back to health. A private man with a broken heart, Max finds himself drawn to the strong-willed woman. Soon it becomes impossible for Nina and Max to deny their growing attraction to one another. Yet even as these two wounded lovebirds think about taking a chance on a relationship, a dangerous secret from Max's past emerges-and threatens to end their love for good.

It was a gamble reading this...

Unfortunately, I was unable to finish this book. Definitely not my cup of tea. I found this book too long and drawn out with not enough plot to keep me interested.

to be re-read time and again

This was my first KA book and it started a crazy addiction to her work! The story of Max and Nina was so much more than I ever thought I would get when I started the book - I laughed and cried and wanted to read it again as soon as I turned over the last page. Yes the writing style has its quirks and you will either find it an endearing context for the story or you'll be put off and not make it through this long book. I obviously fall into the former camp and have this book in my re-read multiple times list.

It was really good but it could do with a lot less of the F word. That got kind of old. I think the story would be just as good without them

LOVED this book! My first Kristen Ashley read, I could not put it down. Loved Max and Duchess (and I'm not usually a big alpha male fan). Fantastic emotional roller coaster story with great plot twists. Nina was a spitfire, a woman you'd totally want as your friend. Hot tempered and super protective, she's on a journey to find herself and ends up finding Max... Mr. alpha Mountain Man. I'm not usually a big fan of alphas, but Ms. Ashley has a way with words! The banter, the smokin' tension, the heart melting moments... I just got completely sucked in. And then there is all of the secondary characters - friends and family - and the town of Gnaw Bone itself. Such fantastic additions - I want more of all of them!
